Trip Overview

Highlights

Second Highest Trekking Peak of Nepal

Situated to the north of the Annapurna massif, the Chulu range of peaks form part of the Manang Himal. This expedition combines one of the world’s finest trek circuits with the second highest trekking peak in Nepal. With commanding views of the ‘great barrier’ from the flanks of Chulu East (6,584m) this challenging expedition into the heart of the Annapurna range is more than a match for any of the Khumbu trekking peaks.

Very few maps accurately mark the four Chulu peaks but the altitudes give away their locations. The east peaks are accessed from the same base camp but are quite different mountains. Chulu East is quite a different proposition requiring much more commitment and alpine experience. From the col on the glaciated ridge you have to descend and cross a broken glacier then climb steep scree slopes to gain a relatively straightforward but high ridge. Setting up a second high camp (camp 1) is a necessity.

The North-East Ridge is considered the normal route to climb this peak from a Base Camp on the moraines at 5334m (17500ft). Most climbers make it to the top and back from Base Camp in one long day although some have, in the past, established a higher camp somewhere below the peak. Another subsidiary peak called Chulu Far East (6059m) 19880ft) may also be attempted from this approach. Chulu East is one of thirty classic trekking peaks in Nepal.
